    Hi guys. Tried to retrofit DIS and it's a big splined bolt holding the wheel on. Any idea what size tool I need? Thanks

    You need an "M12 Spline" bit - worth getting a set to remove many other items on the B6 like front seats etc. like this - Sealey AK219.
    The Steering Wheel nut should be replaced if removed (Audi Part No. N 907 991 02) - according to the Workshop Manual - although you could clean off threads on the old one and apply some Loctite thread sealer. A new bolt has the sealant bonded to the end of a new thread.

    And don't turn the ignition on while the airbag is disconnected or else you'll be plagued by the airbag light.

    Just for reference I purchased the Sealey AK219 from eBay, cost less than £16 delivered and arrived within 2 days!

    Thanks
